My current diet (*ahem*) It's around 1600 calories of fat burning pleasure. About 35-40% fat, 20-25% carbs, 40% protein

6:00 am - rise
6:30 am - 10mg Ephedra, 100mg Caffeine
7:00 am - 8 oz cottage cheese, 4 oz strawberries, Multi-Vit, B-100 complex
8:30 am - 10mg E, 100mg Caffeine, 81.5mg aspirin
9:00 am - 40g oatmeal, 1/2 cup fat-free milk, 1 cup BlueBunny Yogurt
10:30 am - 10mg Ephedra, 100mg Caffeine
11:00 am - 1 slice of 7 grain or multi-grain bread, 4 oz turkey
12:30 pm - 10mg E, 100mg Caffeine, 81.5mg aspirin
1:00 pm - 1.15 oz almonds
2:30 - 10mg E, 100mg Caffeine
3:00 pm - 1.15 oz almonds
4:30 pm - 10mg E, 100mg Caffeine, 81.5mg aspirin
5:00 pm - 4.2 oz chicken breast w/ salsa
7:00 pm - 4.2 oz chicken breast w/ salsa, 2000mg vitamin C, 400 IU Vitamin E
9:00 pm - 2 tbsp of flaxseed oil
10:00 pm - sleep

During the day I fill my 16 oz bottle of water about 5 times at work, and 2 more at home.

I condone drinking large amounts of water everyday. I also condone wearing black pants, so it's harder for others to see when you pee yourself.

1600 cals is awesome low.

You dont have any headache or dizzyness ?

I feel it when im short on cals , then my head starts pounding like a madman.

Thats why i need at least 1800~2000 cals.

I was at 1400 for a while with 0 problems. Since I spread out my meals about every 2 hours there is no hunger either. At 1600 I am the most comfortable, my lifts don't go down, and I still lose weight consistently. I decided to stick here for a while to see how things go. My carbs are mostly fibrous, so I feel full. The only real exception comes in the cottage cheese and yogurt. The yogurt has no added sugar, plus the post I made before claims that a cup of that yogurt has about 4g of carbs. I still count them as 14g though.

Post some before and after pics galileo.

You said you had some , and its always nice to see those.

So we can see how a good diet burns a lot of fat .

A typical day in the life of Callahan's stomach. :D

0500 Wake up. Growl impatiently at Callahan.
0530 1/2 cup yogurt, 2 cups oatmeal, 1/2 litre water
0815 2 slices of ezekiel toast w/ 1tbsp almond butter and a piece of fruit
1100 2 scoops of GNC Elite Mega Mass in water (400 cals, 34g protein). Preworkout...
1300 2 scoops of GNC Elite Mega Mass in water (400 cals, 34g protein), 3-4g of creatine in 300mL grape juice, Postworkout...
1545 8oz roast beef w/ salad greens
1800 An apple, banana, pear, or some other kind of fruit
2030 10oz lightly broiled lamb, 1 large potato or yam, and a mass of steamed collard greens w/ garlic
2230 A piece of fruit or perhaps a scoop of nonfat gelato before bed if I'm still feeling peckish

Now I love variety, so the actual contents of this diet change a lot but the overall theme, timing and rough macronutriet breakdown tend to be about the same.

I also drink an assload of water, and usually 1-2 cups of green tea most weekdays.

I have no access to a scanner at this point and all of my pictures are still in my camera. You'll have to be quite patient!

The only thing I regret, the first pictures I took without my shirt were 6 weeks into the diet. My fattest point pictures have a shirt on in them. But you can see from that point down without shirt. :)

I can probably get them up in 2 weeks when I visit my family.

14:00 2 Pieces of cheese on toast
15:00 Whey Protein Shake
16:00 Lots of fruit of some sort
17:30 Chicken Fillet (approx 150g)
22:10 Mars Bar
23:00 3 Pieces of Cheese on Toast
00:00 150g Ham
01:00 Whey Protein Shake



:rolleyes: Yes I know its not great.

6:30 1 scoop whey + 1.5 scoop MetRx ProteinPlus 4oz strawberries 1tbsp flax blend in 12 oz water.

9:00 2 eggs + 4 egg whites, 4 oz lean grond sirloin, 1/4 cup salsa all scrambled together plus 1/2 grapefruit.

10:30 lift

12:00 1.5 scoop whey + 1 scoop Metrx P.P. 4 oz strawberries, 3 tbsp heavy cream blended with 12 oz water

2:00 6 oz tuna, 1/2 cup cottage cheese w/ 1 tbsp crushed pineapple, 1/4 cup almonds.

5:00 2 tbsp natural PB mixed with 3 scoops Metrx ProteinPlus to form a thick pudding like mixture.

8:00 6 oz chicken breast with a large salad with 2 tbsp vinegar & oil dressing.

10:30 2 scoops MetRx Protein Plus with flax or PB

Quite often on non training days the 12:00 meal will be something like salmon or lean beef with veggies in place of the shake. When I am not low carbing I will have oatmeal instead of the 1/2 grapefruit at brreakfast and I will have yams or rice with my chicken and have a smaller salad in stead of the huge one I am eating now.

Hmmm:


Meal 1:
-6 slices whole wheat bread
-1 protein shake w/2 cups skim milk

Meal 2:
-2 scoops Nlarge
-1 packet lean body MRP

Meal 3:
-2 slices whole wheat bread
-shake or bar

Meal 4:
-1 cup rice (cooked)
-2 cups skim milk

Meal 5:
-1.25 pounds top round steak or ground beef
-3 cups rice

Meal 6:
-protein shake w/skim milk
-2 slices whole wheat bread


Works for me. About 4500 calories, roughly 40/40/20 carbs/protein/fat (actually, a little higher in carbs, lower in protein). Stats in sig.

I don't know why, but I'm surprised. This looks pretty Monstar-ish
:cool: :cool:

BTW, ever hear of fruits and vegetables?(I know, I know, I'm not much better...)

7:30 Bowl of cereal (frick I can't even remember what it is... like Total) with skim milk, banana, yogourt, handful of unsalted peanuts, glass of OJ, 1 1/2 scope protien shake with skim milk (about 35-40g of protien here) and another banana

9:30 My treat of the day - a rice crispy square

10:30 Banana and Orange

12:00 Green Salad, 1 cup of cooked brown rice and either 2 cans of tuna (with a little salsa thrown in for taste) or a full chicken breast.

3:00 Some carrot sticks. Dry mini wheats.

I train at 5

6:30 An apple and a granola bar to keep me alive till I get home.

7-7:30 1 cup of whole wheat pasta and 2 cans of tuna or a full chicken breast (depending on what I had for lunch)

9:00 Some kind of fruit (grapes, a peach or whatever) - I used to have my protien shake here but I always had to get up in the night and take a pee.... and that really pissed me off (no pun intended) I also did it to get some protien in me first thing.

When I sit here and look at it, it doesn't look like that much. I'm going to add 2 eggs and 2 egg whites in there somewhere. I also need to go stock up on protien bars again and take them after my workout like I was before. (cause it's a half-an-hour drive home from the gym)

I snack on bread and milk all day, because it's cheap. Then I make a big dinner... usually ground beef, sometimes pasta, lasagna, goulasch, something tasty, filling, etc. I don't care much about the other meals, as long as I get one really good meal a day I'm satisfied.

Fruits and vegetables are expensive. and spoil. I'm poor.

btw, this is a guideline. I have the occasional beer, piece of cake, pumpkin pie, splurge meal out, etc. etc. Diet is so highly overrated it's not even funny.

What i love is all the folks who say "bread makes you fat", "Shakes aren't real food", etc. To that I say....

Generic canned/frozen stuff is pretty cheap and doesn't spoil. That's usually the route I go. I'm too lazy for anything else.

Totally agree that having a piece of cake or something is no big deal, and there's a lot of silly myths/pseudo-science floating around about diet, but I do think diet is important. But really, as long as one is meeting protein and EFA needs and has some carbs--though even this isn't necessary--the quality of the carbs isn't gonna make much difference. Mostly in comes down to calories.

Damn straight. Wish I could have a little arrow pointing down to my stats too, but that would sort of invalidate the whole point.

I don't even keep track. I just eat every 3 hours and keep it low-carb. Seems to be working :)

I think we're sorta saying the same thing. I've got my protein, I've got my EFAs (fish oil, but 2-3 times a week I have salmon etc.), enough fiber, everything's more or less in place. Diet is important, to a point. Getting a clean diet with the essentials is 90% of it. That extra 10%, well, it's only 10%. And is it worth going psychotic over.

And stop talkin smack about yourself, man. You look great, and I mean that.

That is exactly what I've done for 3 years bro! However, I feel the need to track mine now since I need to add 10 pounds or so to the frame. If I don't know what my calorie intake is now.....that might be kinda hard.
